White spots on the leaves are also a natural discoloration that is common on cigarette leaves. They occur when the leaf is fully mature, and in many circles, is a farmer's clear sign that the tobacco is ripe and ready to be picked. Some farmers will pick the leaves before the spots occur for aesthetic purposes, but others wait so that the leaf reaches its potential maturity. It is common I had been told it was sugar.It's not sugar.
Thanks that's kinda what it looks like, either way I am OK.It is nothing. I think it is sugar and quite common in virginia tobacco.
Wow that's pretty interesting thanks.I have a book (somewhere) from the early 1900's. It says the little white specks are from ozone. There was a time when white flecked cigars were all the rage.
Well, you were told wrong. Sugar isn't flexible. Sugar would dissolve in the rain. Sugar would taste like sugar. The g.d. hummingbirds would be all over that s#&%t in the field. Randy's crop would be ruined by foraging bears for Pete's sake. And lastly, it would look like sugar.It is common I had been told it was sugar.
